Servings: 15 cookies


  • ½ cup cashew butter
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder optional, to make them a chocolate flavor



  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Beat together cashew butter and coconut sugar in a stand mixer with paddle attachment or hand mixer with beaters.
  • Once fluffy and light in color, stop mixing, scrape down sides and add egg.
  • Beat again until egg is combined, then add rest of dry ingredients.
  • Once a thick dough ball is formed, scoop onto a large piece of parchment paper and press into a rectangle shape.
  • Place another large piece of parchment paper over that, and with a rolling pin, roll into a thin sheet, about ¼” thick (if you notice the dough is too sticky, sprinkle some extra cassava flour where you feel is needed.)
  • Punch out gingerbread shapes(or any shapes you’d like), transfer to parchment lined sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely before decorating.
  • Use chocolate, cereals, candies, nut butters, coconut and whatever else you’d like to decorate with! Have fun!
